West Coast Anash

By and for the  Men & Women of Chabad Lubavitch in California, Oregon & Nevada


A few weeks after Gimmel Tammuz 5754/1994, a group of Anash, headed by the very special Tzorchei Tzibbur Chossid – R’ BenTzion Novack, founded this independent service to unite Anash members to stay connected with our Rebbe by doing the following: 

  • Weekly Bulletin – First via fax, and later by email. Sharing Mazel Tovs, Community Events, Divrei Malchus, Moshiach Times, Candle Lighting Times, Tehillim requests and much more.
  • Community Calendar – Stay updated with community events. You can add your event to the community calendar by selecting your event date and clicking “create”. You can also check out the community calendar, prior to setting an event date and make sure that it doesn’t coincide with any other community events!
  • The Anash Directory – Originally a 4 page stapled booklet, it grew to over 70 pages in a bound book including more than 1100 families. This address information let us create mailings for new Shluchim and for people who were celebrating Simchas. Now, you can access the data at www.Anash.Name.
  • Facebook – Hundreds use Facebook! Join, Friend, and Like Us at

We are forever grateful to R’ BenTzion Novack for establishing this beautiful forum to keep us all connected to the Rebbe.

Thanks to all of you for your support!
